Librivox recording of Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton.
Read by Elizabeth Klett.

Edith Wharton's 1911 novel Ethan Frome tells the story of a tragic love triangle. Set in the highly symbolic wintry landscape of Starkfield, Massachusetts, the narrative centers on the title character's fraught relationships with his "sickly, cantankerous" wife Zeena and his young, beautiful cousin Mattie Silver. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

Subject: Depressing story
A love triangle story (sort of). This story is so stark and depressing in so many aspects. Elizabeth Klett does a lovely job with the story. I think she well conveyed the depressing dreariness of this sad sad story.

Subject: Not All Elizabeth's Fault
I appreciate the reader's clear enunciation, but I always look for a reading that doesn't sound like one. There are no rhythms, no hills and valleys, just a steady ride as though in Ethan's timber-hauling wagon. But even more, I wish that a more intimate, perhaps more mature voice had been chosen and one with a slight New England accent.

Subject: Fantastic recording
I've just completed chapter one, and I already feel that Elizabeth Klett's wonderful recording is one of the best I've listened to yet! Such a pleasure to listen to, she has really captured the magic and mystery of the story. I can't wait to hear the rest. Thanks Elizabeth!
